PHX11 steps back in history

[Source: City of Phoenix] — PHX11 takes viewers to historic properties that still impact our city today on the next edition of “Everything Phoenix,” hosted by Sydney Blaine.  Starting with the cemetery at Pioneer and Military Memorial Park, viewers will see the final resting place of notable figures in Arizona history and folklore.  Next, tour one of the most extravagant venues of its day, the Orpheum Theatre, which first opened in 1929.  See the results of the Orpheum’s 12-year restoration project and how the historic theatre reopened adjacent to the newly built Phoenix City Hall. PHX11 brings you back to the present with the story of the McCarty Apartments, developed by Leon McCarty to provide quality housing for the city’s minority residents in 1963.  Learn how the legacy will continue with the redevelopment project that will bring new affordable housing for seniors when the McCarty on Monroe Apartments open in 2010.
